The Clovis Times newspaper represents the changing times that is the America we now live in. Old standards no longer apply; the clothes we wear, the political party we belong to, the way we fix our hair, or the newspaper we read for information we want. Newspapers have survived because of the resiliency of the market that refuses to give up the print edition. America grew up on citizen journalism. It became more sophisticated during the 19th century, and now citizen journalism is finding its way back into vogue.
Clovis Times is a newspaper that presents a conservative editorial viewpoint and likes the personal and direct approach to local community news. We have people write for us who are both knowledgeable and passionate about their topics. You can feel the intensity in their reports, articles, and stories. News is news and opinion is opinion; it isn’t easy to keep them apart. In our case, they may mix in more than we would wish.
Clovis is a maturing community from what it was just a few years ago. Its increased population wants and needs its own identity. We hope the Clovis Times can give it a weekly newspaper that will deliver community news and information on a level it deserves.
Just how long it will take to become weekly is a matter of the conditions that affect the local business community. Lock-down or no lock-down. Even the fear of a lock-down will affect the ability of businesses to be able to advertise. The other side of the revenue are subscriptions. If you are interested in helping us to get started and expand, then taking a premium digital subscription will go a long way. www.ClovisTimes.com
